Aerial Cirque Benefit

So for those of you who don’t know, I take circus classes. My class along with some SANCA students and some professionals will be putting on a benefit show this weekend at Magnuson Park in Seattle. It’s going to be wonderful and I will be in all three shows. After regretting not doing a solo last year, I’m sucking it up and will be doing a solo and a doubles routine with a friend. There will be live music for both Saturday shows, the afternoon is kiddie friendly and the evening show will be more adult oriented. More details about the show can be found at our myspace here.

Ever since Matt took me to Teatro Zinzanni 3 years ago, I have fallen in love with circus arts, particularly aerial business like rope, tissu, trapeze, hoop. Rope was what sucked me in, seeing an amazing routine at Zinzanni. I felt like I was up there and I was no longer content to watch and cheer. I needed to be up there, feeling the rope between my feet, making the crowd ooh and ahh. After a year of letting my desire develop, I talked Matt into taking a SANCA class with me and I couldn’t get off the rope. At the time they didn’t have any classes solely on rope and I was referred to Lara Paxton, founder of Circus Contraption and the Aerialistas. I can’t seem to stop taking classes and my body has enjoyed the workout…I haven’t seen ab definition on me since I was on the wrestling team.

So, if you’d like to see how my abs have developed or want to support two super cool charities or join the auction and try to buy one of my amazing vegan cakes at the cake walk or for any other reason you can think of, come on down!
